Last week I had the honour of presenting a talk on radio and help out writing songs with a host of the best young songwriters in South Essex. It was one of the best things I’ve been involved it.

I had 10, count them 10 guests on the show. Seven of the songwriters and three of my fellow facilitators. Each songwriter who were able to attend played at least one of the originals they worked on last week.
